Upcoming Events

Winter Waterfowl Count Workshop

January 23, 2020 07:00 pm - 09:00 pm
Location: National Wildlife Federation, Wildlife Center Drive 11100, Reston, Virginia

Join Greg Butcher, Audubon Society Northern Virginia board member and migratory species coordinator for U.S. Forest Service International Programs, for an introduction to waterfowl identification. Get to know many of the species that winter in the open waters of our region. You’ll learn how to tell a Bufflehead from a Hooded Merganser, and, with luck, you will see the beautiful Tundra Swans that winter in our area. Strategies will include identification by shape and color pattern. This workshop will include an outdoor field trip and bird walk on Saturday, January 25—details will be given in class. After the workshop and field trip, you’ll be ready to rally for a tally during our 12th Annual Waterfowl Count, Saturday, February 8, and Sunday, February 9. Space is limited, so please register here
